EDAMAME-soy beans

Morning ladies. Do any of you eat edamame? Specifically, have you tried it for hot flashes? I've been trying it for a few days now and think I'm seeing results, maybe in my head but I'll take it. I'm thinking it isn't just the bean itself but soy in general. To me the taste is kind of like lima beans and I really like them for a snack, cooked and salted. There are so many benefits I should eat them anyway.

We buy them frozen and I steam them (out of the shells) along with cauliflower; we love thewm this way! We have eaten them other ways, but this is our most common way. I can't get them anywhere near home so usually buy a couple bags at a time to put in the freezer. DH eats them also. We mainly eat them for the protein, and I really can't tell you if they have any effect on hot flashes or not. I don't treat mine I just suffer through it; but maybe they have helped and I wasnpt aware of it! lol

I found them yesterday at Walmart, out of the shell, for $1.68 a pound. Also found them in shell for the same price, same size bag, then one more brand for $2. something in shell. I'm sure you know which I chose.

Wow, I'll have to look at Walmart next time I go; maybe the ones I go to now have them also, thanks!
